What educators are saying

Comprehensive resource that provides great examples and explanations for teachers and parents! Easy to understand and will be very helpful!
My parents always have many questions especially at the beginning of each year, so this resource is the perfect handout to help explain different disorders in a way everyone can understand.


This set of 21 handouts are perfect to help spread awareness of the role and importance of speech-language therapy in the school setting! They are designed to explain the overall role of speech-language therapy, what different communication disorders are and how they can impact the school setting, what standardized testing is for and how to interpret scores, IEPs/504s, and speech-language services in school settings versus private practice.

(Want a FREE sample? Check out my blog post here.)

These are very helpful to give to parents, classroom teachers, special educators, administrators, and other therapists! You'll want to make copies to hand out at IEP meetings and at the beginning of every school year.
